A substantial village house with annex, in 2.5 acres of mature gardens with paddock.
Grade II listed and of ashlar stone and brick under a Welsh and Collyweston slate roof, this attractive house is discreetly positioned behind a protective stone wall which ensures an enviable degree of privacy within about 2.5 acres of mature gardens with a paddock.
The spacious reception hallway sets the tone to this generously proportioned house, framed by a 24' drawing room, with high ceiling, stone fireplace, large windows and bow fronted French doors, and a snug. The hallway passes a cloakroom to the symmetrical, dual aspect dining room with marble fireplace, to the family room with French doors to the garden and a wood burning stove that separates this room from the kitchen.
The spacious kitchen has a central island and an extensive suite with a double oven Aga and separate electrical companion, with an adjoining utility and access to the cellar and to the garden.
There are five generous double bedrooms, three bath or shower rooms and a games room at first floor level. The three room principal suite is particularly generous, with bedroom, dressing room and en suite. Bedroom two is close to the full suite family bathroom, whilst a separate shower room is alongside bedroom four and the secondary landing. The secondary landing serves two further double bedrooms, separated by the 23' Games Room, with access directly from the kitchen via a rear staircase.
An adjoining one bedroom annex, accessed from the secondary driveway is currently used as a home office suite, with a generous living space with small kitchenette, a double bedroom and bathroom.
An expansive gravel driveway to the front of the house offers ample parking, complimented by well-stocked borders and mature trees, and leads to the triple garage block.
The gardens extend to 2.5 acres, or thereabouts, with mature trees defining the boundaries. The gardens lie to the rear of the property, with direct access from the kitchen and family room, with a large terrace adjoining the house.
The gardens are beautiful, with an extensive lawn that rises gently away from the house to a post and railed paddock.
